The competition for the Eagles includes running back Ray Rice and wide receiver Torrey Smith of the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. Also, Plaxico Burress of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Harrisburg native Marques Colston and Mark Ingram of the New Orleans Saints, Mike Wallace of the Miami Dolphins and Devon Still, the Penn State product now with the Cincinnati Bengals.

“I am really excited by the positive response from so many teammates and friends from around the league,” McCoy said in a statement.  “We are talking to a number of other great players that I hope to announce in the near future.  Coach Chip Kelly has also been invited.”

McCoy's brand partner, BODYARMOR SuperDrink™, is one of the sponsors.

A “Home Run Derby” starting at 6 p.m. is scheduled to precede the 7 p.m. game.  More fireworks are slated for after the softball game.


Proceeds are scheduled to be directed to the LeSean McCoy Foundation to raise funds and awareness for ALS. McCoy’s late grandmother, Maryann Branch, had ALS.
